Advancing Twill sampling

Here I am still playing around with the advancing twill that has been on my Baby Wolf since the JOY workshop. This was a good experience for me. I dented my first 60 epi (ends per inch) warp! Since I warp front to back and didn't want to learn another warpping way, I had to figure out how to dent 60 epi. I knew I could put 4 ends in a 15 dent reed, but gosh.... how would I keep the ends in order..... so yes, I bought a 30 dent reed. Easy-Peasy! Of course some can't afford a new reed, but I had been saving and so I went for it!

And now I am trying to do 60 ppi (picks per inch). And of course still trying out different wefts. Lots to think about when working with a "new to you" technique.
